INFLAMMATORY SKIN CONDITIONSBrochures and Education for Dermatology Patients
Two of the most common types of inflammatory skin conditions in both adults and children are eczema and psoriasis. It is estimated that more than 31 million people in the US have some form of eczema, and more than 7 million have psoriasis. In many cases, these lifelong conditions can typically be treated with proper education and monitoring, providing a better quality of life for patients.
PathologyWatch has developed a series of free, printable brochures for you to share with your patients. These complimentary handouts help to identify symptoms, risks, and treatment options when it comes to common inflammatory skin conditions.
“Eczema is a noncontagious type of dermatitis, or skin irritation, which traditionally presents with redness, itchiness, or irritation. . . . Eczema typically presents before age five but can continue into adolescence and adulthood.”
“Psoriasis is a noncontagious skin condition in which new skin cells develop more quickly, causing them to pile up on the surface of the skin.”
